LWR Town Hall, Grow Financial branch offering free shredding

By Nick Williams

Lakewood Ranch Town Hall and the Lakewood Ranch Grow Financial Branch, in conjunction with Accu-Shred, will offer free shredding services to the public 9 a.m.-noon Sept. 22.

Free Community Shred Day will allow Manatee residents to drop off personal documents for shredding at two locations: the Lakewood Ranch Grow Financial Branch location  at 11008 Arcade Place or Lakewood Ranch Town Hall, 8175 Lakewood Ranch Blvd.

As many as nine million Americans have their identity stolen every year and shredding personal documents helps prevent identity theft.

The services will be provided by Accu-Shred, a Tampa-based company that is certified by the National Association of Information Destruction.

Those interested are asked to limit shredding material to two medium size boxes. Commercial and business documents will not be accepted.

  1. This is a great idea, here in the UK The Shredding Alliance have 4 shredding days over the year and have a small fair and BBQ to make it a bit more enjoyable. Please come down to have some fun while shredding there documents.
